UK: Shambala Festival has awarded Gorilla UK a three-year contract for the design, installation and removal its bridges, security towers and site structures – including marquee facades and DJ towers.
Production Manager Christine Dent from Shambala’s parent company, Kambe Events, said: “We needed a number of temporary structures to be designed and built around the festival site, primarily two bridges – one for foot traffic and the other capable of carrying buggies –plus seven security towers and other structures including marquee facades and DJ towers. The team from Gorilla worked with us throughout the process to design, install and de-rig them quickly and efficiently, and we were delighted with the result. As a result, we are pleased to be able to award a three-year contract for the provision of these services.”
For Shambala 2019, Gorilla designed, installed and de-rigged two bridges, seven security towers and five site structures, including marquee facades and DJ towers using a five-man team over a five-day install and one-day de-rig.
Gorilla MD, Andy Gregorek, said: “At Gorilla we have developed significant experience in the design and installation of temporary structures for live events. We are thrilled that the organisers have recognised this with the awarding of an extended contract.”
